How do DMCA Takedowns work in other countries?

When content is removed from a website at the request of the owner of the content or the owner of the copyright of the content.

Although the DMCA is part of US Copyright law, a DMCA Takedown does not require the content to be copyrighted in order to process the takedown OR for the request to have the content taken down acted upon by the website owner or ISP.

The fact the content is yours, or in the case of a photo or video the subject is you, can be sufficient to request a takedown.

What are examples of DMCA Takedown conditions in other countries?

  1. when copyright infringing content is removed or "taken down" from a website, by the website owner, upon receipt of a DMCA Takedown Notice from their ISP / Hosting company. This notice is generated by, or on behalf of, the illegally published content owner, distributor, publisher etc.

  4. when an infringing website is taken down or "offline" by its ISP or Hosting company. This occurs because the website owner does not voluntarily comply with a Takedown notice as described above.

These actions occur upon receipt of a DMCA Takedown which uses stipulations laid out in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. (DMCA).

DMCA Takedown Testimonial

Dear DMCA, We have been a strong supporter and user of your services for some years now. DMCA has helped us over the years to takedown a number of websites both locally and abroad who duplicate and distribute our editorial website’s content illegally. Without the help of DMCA: a) our editorial staff’s frustration of illegal content piracy would have become near unmanageable b) we would have to review our content syndication to limit access to our users. Something we as a media company would have found most bitter to execute. I wish the DMCA the best continuation and possibly a physical someday when I swing by NY. -Cheers

Three things are needed to file takedowns in other countries:

1. Infringing URL(s)/Link(s)

Infringing URL

What is the link that you want the content removed from? Where on the internet on platform is your stolen content located? Be sure to provide the URL or website/webpage link of the content you want removed. If the stolen content is an image or video located on a website provide the direct link of the content contained in the site. Copy and paste the infringing text, or provide the URL of the infringing image if required.

An example link would look like:

Source URL

2. Source URL(s)/Link(s)

Where was your content located when it was stolen, was it on your social media profile? Was it from your own website? Provide the exact URL where it was stolen from, even if the content has already been removed from its original location. The original URL is still valuable to the notice. If it was not online you can reference cell phone, computer, or camera etc. If it was online such as a website or cloud storage provide the link to the exact page it was stolen from. You can upload the original content to a cloud storage service and provide that URL with an explanation of where it was originally stolen from.

An example link would look like:

3. Description of Theft and Ownership

Description of Ownership

What is the content owner's name and how was the content stolen? How is this content yours? How do you own it? Did you create it, buy it, copyright it? Who is claiming ownership of the content? Who is authorized to file the DMCA Takedown? When did you create the content and when was the content stolen?

An example description would sound like: "My photo I took of myself on my camera was stolen from my Google Drive and was posted on this website without my knowledge and I would like it removed."
